2006 Winter Olympics in Italy....

Sweden with a win over Slovakia, would face Canada in the Q-finals....a loss, the Swedes would face Switzerland.

Slovakia 3, Sweden 0....and thats about how many shots on goal the Swedes had...

Oh yeah....Sweden went on to win Gold.

Oh yeah...Peter Forsberg admitted that they threw the game.

They need to give the Gold to Finland....

To be fair, you can tank a hockey game and not make a complete embarrassment of the sport. All it takes is not finishing a few checks, not digging in the corners, trying to make cute passes on offence. It's a bit different in 2 on 2 badminton.

The hockey equivalent to what these guys did would have been shooting it down the ice from your own blue line every time you had possession, 'accidently' firing one-timers at your own goalie, pulling your goalie in the middle of the 1st period, etc.

Fixes happen in the NHL on a regular basis.  We've been seeing it as long as gary's been commissioner.
